Foraminal lumbar disc protrusion

Case contributed by A.Prof Frank Gaillard
Modality: MRI

Right sided foraminal lumbar disc protrusion compressing only the exiting nerve root and not narrowing the subarticular recess. 

Case Discussion

Disc projecting into the right neural-exit foramen and compressing the exiting nerve root in this case is relatively easy to overlook if foraminal disc protrusions are not actively sought.
